tiptoe through the tulips

We had fantastic weather 'round there this weekend. Friday night, Mrs. Craver and I took a stroll around the neighborhood. There is one neighbor who's house and yard is always pretty. I rang the bell and ran. (No; I'm kidding.) I rang the bell and asked if we could traipse across their lawn to take pics of the pink tulips. In appreciation, I will go back there later, and give them a print.

.

You know, this gentleman extended his hand and told me his name, and I immediately forgot it. Shame on me; I will have to ask again.

These reds are from my own flowerbed. My neighbors probably get a good laugh when they see me with my camera crawling after a bug or laying down to get this angle on the flowers. Maybe I should put a little photo album together and invite them over for coffee and cookies. Of course, if I keep doing peculiar things as I try to capture an image, maybe they have pictures of me!!

Tulips are very cool flowers. I'm a TULIP-Christian as well.

Here's an oldie but a goodie:

Wuahaha, you never know Craver, maybe they do have pictures of you!!
Have I ever told you how refreshing your blog is? I either smile, laugh or get goosebumps from each posts. This time = all three! Your photos gave me goosebumps, they are so nice, I think you should definitely frame them.
Glad you and Mrs. Craver had a good weekend :)

Ha, that's funny to think they might be taking pictures of you while you are running around with your camera.
You did good with the tulips!

Most of the time I find my neighbors ignore me so carry on crawling around like that and soon they will ignore you too. LOL!!

Great shots Craver. They do make a beautiful show.

Sandman, the TULIP part is cool, but the Tiny Tim video is a little unsettling. Do you know what ever happened to that guy and did he earn enough to make the silliness worthwhile?

I'll admit Imac, that I would have been hesitant to crawl around like I do until I saw pics of you doing it first.

That's a lesson that's sinking in, Fishing Guy. Other lessons are a little more difficult for me. For example, I have not taken a decent pic of the moon with this new camera yet. The old Mavica with it's spot meter used to do all the work for me.

That's funny Mr. Dave. I would not put it past my daughter, who likes to use the video feature on her camera.

Leeloo, that is music to my ears. I am so glad for your visits, and what your personality adds to this community.

Well, I do not know if any of these neighbors are camera buffs Dot, but I have seen pics where Imac's wife took snapshots of him doing a belly crawl on the grass, or laying on rocks in the middle of a flowing stream. Those kinds of pics make it to his blog from time to time.

They ignore you Joan? What a loss! If I were your neighbor, I think I would probably be a pest, always wanting to see your photographs, and learn from your expertise.

I don't know what happened to Tiny Tim. I think I heard, not sure, that he had was converted to Christ.

I'll have to check that out.
